New publication on careers launched

05 July 2019

Good Career Guidance: Perspectives from the Special Educational Needs and Disabilities sector launched in collaboration with the Gatsby Foundation and the Careers & Enterprise Company.

The Gatsby Foundation, in collaboration with The Careers & Enterprise Company and Disability Rights UK, have created a new publication which aims to inspire Careers Leaders, teachers and all those working with young people with special educational needs and disabilities to use the Gatsby Benchmarks to create a strong career guidance programme for each and every young person.

The eight benchmarks are a framework for good career guidance developed to support schools in providing students with the best possible careers education, information, advice, and guidance.

Rabia Lemahieu, Disability and Skills Manager at Disability Rights UK said:

“Young disabled people aged 16–24 are more likely than other groups to end up Not in Employment, Education or Training (NEET). Supporting this group requires a stronger focus on their guidance needs, starting with independent careers advice in schools. The Gatsby Benchmarks provide an important framework for ensuring that young disabled people’s aspirations are fully considered, supporting them to reach their potential.”
